    At or near 100 everyday, lows in the low 80s at night. At least tornado season will be mostly over by the time you get here.

    Turn your oven to 125 and let it get to temp... then stick your head inside. That is pretty close to a DFW summer if the wind isn't blowing. When the wind picks up it can be really nice.

    The humidity can be high and really make it miserable. Even if the hear index is 110+ it's not that bad unless you work outside. Just remember to drink plenty of water even if your only working inside.
    What part of Dallas are you going to be at?

    I know the summer I spent in San Diego for basic training was by far one of the best weather summers I have had in my entire life. The evenings were cool, the days were warm and it almost never rained and there was always a breeze. It was a complete 180 degrees from hauling hay in the pasture in Texas.

    Well obviously I didn't mean it would be as dry as Colorado, but it's going to be way less humid than if he were going to ,say Houston.

    Expect it to be about 100 give or take a few degrees. It is dryer than usual this year because of that el niño or la niño crap.
    If you plan to do something outside swimming is about all that is bearable during the day. At night it's still really hot but not as bad.
